I woke up on this sunny morn
And went about my normal way
Something though is very wrong
When everything bright seems gray

Im really trying to be happy
And Im trying hard to be strong
But a moment of weakness has found me
My stoic veil has hidden me so long

It seems to have broken down enough
For my hidden feelings to show through
I feel a prisoner inside my mind
My taboo emotions ringing true

I chide myself sitting in silence
His image echoes through my mind
If only Fate had allowed me to find him
In another place another time

I would love to be and hold him
Just once I let hope course through me
StillIm left here in this emptiness
Lost in my minds personal infinity

And so, I continue to sit here in the sunlight
Letting the rays kiss each and every tear
I feel like such a fool for just feeling
Glad he cant see me like this hes not here

Ill get a hold of myself in a minute
Put on my very best happy face
And I'll be the friend I am to him, 'cause
My feelings dont belong in this time and place




 May I never be too busy to help another's load,
Then I'll be drinking from the saucer 'cause my cup has overflowed.

Your feelings are very well expressed, Satiate. I hope that happiness will find its way to you soon. Good luck!

'Tis very rough indeed, and painful.

Satiate,
this is so beautiful, sadly sweet. I really felt your emotions in this...well written and the last line is perfect!
take care, jm

Do you care what is thought by others about you
If this day is all that is promised to you
Do you live for the present, the future the past...

I'd have to say that your feelings always belong in your own place and time.  It's unfortunate when they don't jive with others' though....Nice work, my friend..

Wow, what a painful poem.  I'm not one to be giving advice in this area, I know... but if he is your friend, hold fast to that, there is a time and a place for everything.

I'm under the thought that it is always the right time and place to let your feelings out...it's when you try to hold them inside that life becomes difficult.
